Cross-government Prosperity Fund programmes

Prosperity Fund programmes aim to remove barriers to economic growth, and promote economic reform and development to reduce poverty in partner countries.

The Prosperity Fund seeks to promote systemic changes in partner countries through a number of large programmes from 2017 to 2018 onwards. Programmes will focus on either a number of issues within a specific country, or a crosscutting theme in multiple countries.

The Fund has moved from single-year projects to multi-year programmes so that it can target larger opportunities that take more time to achieve, but offer higher benefits in countries with the highest potential for inclusive growth. As well as contributing to a reduction in poverty in those countries, the programmes should create opportunities for international businesses including those from the UK.

The Fund’s portfolio is currently split between 23 countries and across 12 sectors with programmes in a range of UK government departments. See the 2016 to 2017 Annual Report for a breakdown of estimated spend across the Fund.

Many of these programmes are still in development and information will be added to these pages as it becomes available.
